Still nothing of Kevin Pietersen, Ian Bell, Eoin Morgan or yet Skipper Andrew Strauss spoke openly of their fight coming up to terms with Pakistani spin in the wasteland.
In its place, Monty Panesar was not only in the chair but decided to redirect the responsibility for a 2nd consecutive Test beat inAbu Dhabi away from a go wrongEngland middle order and on to himself.
It looked a harsh self appraisal after he had came back to international cricket for the 1st time in 2 and a half years and bagged a 2nd innings pull of 6 for 62 at the Zayed Stadium, to hand his striking squad mates an it seems that attainable successful aim of 145 runs.
They then down their lines on the mode to 72 all out number 11 Panesar was left on (0) not out yet England’s slow left-armer was complete of self-reproach for a 1st innings appearance which brought him only 1 wicket, for 91 runs, in 33 overs.
I was happy with my presentation in the 2nd innings. But perhaps I let the team fall in the 1st innings, he said.
Pakistan bowled well in that previous innings and in the 1st innings I got 1 wicket in 33 overs. I require picking up wickets at a faster rate. That’s something I desire to expand and get better, said Panesar.
As batsmen, we did obtain tested and we’re strong-minded to come back stronger in the 3rd Test, said Panesar.
His was a shock, but completely correct, addition in the 2nd Test which observed spin from initial on day one and completed it necessary that England had a 2nd slow bowler to escort Swann.
Playing in the subcontinent is dissimilar from English circumstances, and we all desire to produce and learn and become improved at coping, he said.
I take pleasure in the challenge of bowling with the fresh ball early on, and Straussy gave me that confidence in terms of bringing me on initial.
